The First thing we do is prepare the mushrooms. But wait a minute,  In the video we are told not to wash them! So to wash or not to wash mushrooms? That is the question?                 Tasty Unfried Broccoli And Mushroom

Many have said in the past that mushrooms should never be washed. The theory is that because mushrooms are porous they will take a big drink when in contact with water, then bloat and lose their flavor. The alternative to washing mushrooms is to wipe them down individually with a piece of a damp paper towel, a cloth, or a special mushroom brush. All of which are very time consuming. These methods may be ok for a few but what if you want to cook a whole box. via The RIGHT Way To Clean Mushrooms – The Huffington Post

So when given the fact that mushrooms are already full of water, how much more can be absorbed by giving them a quick wash?

Well the people at Cooks Illustrated performed a test on six ounces of shrooms to test the theory.

They found that once the mushrooms were given a quick rinse they only gained a quarter ounce of water! Well; that’s good enough for me, I’m up for giving them a quick shower or dunk and drying them on a paper towel right before cooking.

How about you. Do you brush, dunk or give your shrooms a quick shower before making your version of this tasty unfried broccoli dish?
